The “Willkommen bei Freunden” programme is funded by the German Federal Ministry of Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth (BMFSFJ). With this grant, the Deutsche Kinder- und Jugendstiftung expanded integration and participation measures for unaccompanied and separated children and youth with a particular focus on strengthening young peoples’ voices and actively involve them in the planning and organisation of activities dedicated to them. Contrary to many initiatives that are targeted to children and youth below the age of 18, this project stressed the open participation for all young people interested to join.
